71. DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST – None

72. MINUTES OF THE PREVIOUS MEETING HELD 19th OCTOBER 2015 which had been circulated previously were signed as a correct and accurate record.

73. UPDATE ON ITEMS FROM THE MINUTES 19TH OCTOBER 2015
i) Minute 27(iv) – Village Produce Association Cherry tree in the Memorial Gardens – the VPA had changed its request to planting a tree in Church Road Recreation Ground. The committee has no objection to this. The clerk to facilitate
ii) Minute 57(i) – Vehicle Activated signs – MDMessagemaker had sent a quotation of £15,120, including installation. The clerk had informed OCC of the Parish Council’s intentions and had received this reply: “The original signs were to be placed on lamp columns so the locations will be different for those originally agreed, new positions will therefore need to be agreed. The design of the proposed signage will need to comply with the Department for Transport guidelines as the proposed signs are to be located on the public highway, details of this can be found at http://tsrgd.co.uk/pdf/tal/2003/tal-1-03.pdf. The installation procedure will require Oxfordshire County Council agreement.”
The clerk be will contacting MD Messagemaker and OCC further.
iii) Minute 59 – Double decker buses for school transport. The clerk was yet to contact OCC. Cllr Newman had contacted Wheatley Park School and they would be putting the matter on their next Transport Plan meeting
iv) Minute 61 – Littleworth Allotments A letter had been sent out to all allotment holders saying that the parish Council was a little worried about the untidy state of some of the allotments, asking for their future intentions and if they had any views for the future. Two replies had been received and two allotment holders had been in to the office. A common view expressed was the desire to purchase their allotment. It was also clear that there is confusion over boundaries between the householders land and the allotment land. Site visits would be held.

74. TO CONTINUE THE BUDGET PROCESS FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR 2016-2017
The budgets were presented in landscape form as requested with a comments column.
2015-2016 budget – at the moment it looks as if there would be a draw down from reserves of £33,000. This had been planned for in last year’s budget process. £1,000 had been added to expenditure for expenditure on the Neighbourhood Plan.
2016-2017 budget – SODC would be withdrawing the Council Tax Support Grant from Parishes. For 2015-16 this amounted to £3,500 for Wheatley. This would mean a reduction in income for 2016-17. £18,500 expenditure on the Neighbourhood Plan had been allowed for, offset by an expected £18,500 of grant income.
It was also felt that the Parish should assume no money from the County Council to help with grass verge cutting. An income loss of around £1,000.
The tax base figures for 2016-2017 had just been received which showed an extremely small increase for Wheatley. Every £1,000 increase in the precept would add 58p per year to a band ‘D’ property.
Cllr Newman informed the committee that the development on London Road could result in the Parish Council receiving a share in the Section 106 payments of around £200,000. This could go towards the sports pavilions and pitches, open spaces and play equipment and other infrastructure. This payment was not yet confirmed.
It was agreed that an amount should be earmarked for the refurbishment of Farm Close Recreation Ground.
All councillors are requested to consider items for next year’s budget.

75. TO CONSIDER SUPPORT FOR THE MAPLE TREE CHILDREN’S CENTRE
This item had been referred to F&GP by the full Parish Council meeting.
The Centres had been told that if they could raise between £30,000 and £40,000 each, then the centre could stay open.
Councillors felt that the centre should be supported but that the parish couldn’t afford that kind of sum for what would be an ongoing commitment especially given the other pressures on the budget following withdrawal of other county and district financial support.
The committee asked Ms Job, who had attended on behalf of the centre to try and give the Parish Council the number of people from Wheatley who had used the centre. Once in possession of those numbers the committee would be in a position to agree the amount of support they were prepared to give either as a one off amount or ongoing. This was AGREED

76. TO CONSIDER THE CONDITION OF THE TREES WITHIN THE VILLAGE AND WHAT ACTIONS ARE NECESSARY
The trees along the footpath from Farm Close Road to Farm Close Lane (north
side) – Shortlift Ltd (the owners of the land) had asked for the name of local contractors to carry out the work, which was a positive step but now required a further letter from the Parish council requesting the work be carried out. This he would do.

77. GRANTS, LICENCES AND SUBSCRIPTIONS
i) Sue Ryder Nettlebed Hospice – £50 in 2014/15 – AGREED £50.00
78. TO CONSIDER THE REPORTS ON THE PARISH COUNCILLORS’ WALKS
AROUND THE VILLAGE
Footpath along the rear of Barlow’s Close – it was Agreed that the adoption of
this footpath should be brought to the next full council meeting but in the
meantime advice should be sought as to the process.
It was also AGREED that the Council should pursue its claim to ownership of
the strip of land from Coopers Close to the concrete apron in front of the
industrial units.

79. TO CONSIDER THE LOAN OF HAND TOOLS FOR HEDGE TRIMMING
Cllr Stephens felt that perhaps the reason for overhanging hedges was that
home owners did not have the right tools to do the job. He proposed that the Parish
Council buy some hand tools to loan out to residents so they could undertake
the job. This was AGREED. Cllr Stephens would advertise this service in the Newsletter in the Spring.

80. CLERK UPDATE
i) VPA Request to plant a cherry tree in Church Road Recreation Ground. See
minute 73(i)
ii) Gardener for the Memorial Gardens – The clerk had employed gardener from
Wheatley to tidy up the Memorial Gardens prior to Remembrance Sunday. He would also tend to the planter outside Costcutter and continue to look after the Memorial Gardens.
iii) Historic England were considering giving listed status to the Wheatley War Memorial

WHEATLEY PARISH COUNCIL

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE PARISH COUNCIL
HELD ON MONDAY 2nd NOVEMBER 2015 IN THE MERRY BELLS HALL AT 7.30PM
PRESENT: Councillors: J Carr (Chairman), R Bell, P Hood, A Davies, T Davies,
A Walkey, S Coleridge, P Willmott, P Gregory, P Bignell,
G Birks, R Reilly, I Roberts and T Newman

OFFICERS: Gareth Morris, Clerk to the Parish Council
Also present: County Councillor Anne Purse, Mr P Hood (Internal Auditor to Wheatley Parish Council) and 7 members of the public
In the absence of the Chairman, Cllr G Stephens, the Vice-Chairman, Cllr J Carr, chaired the meeting.

78. APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE had been received from Cllr Stephens

79. DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST – Cllr Carr declared an interest in Item 8 on the Agenda (the development of 51 houses on London Road)

80. MINUTES of the meeting of the Parish Council meeting held on 7th September 2015 which have been circulated previously were signed as a correct and accurate record

81. UPDATE from the minutes of the Parish Council meeting held on Monday 7th September 2015
i) Minute 61(i) Request from the Village Produce Association to plant a cherry tree in the Church Road Recreation Ground rather than the Memorial Gardens. The Parish Council AGREED to this. The F&GP Committee to decide the details.

82. TO AGREE TO APPOINT MR PHILLIP HOOD AS THE INTERNAL AUDITOR AND SIGN HIS LETTER OF ENGAGEMENT.
The Chairman welcomed Mr Hood to the meeting.
Mr Hood referred Councillors to two publications, “The Governance and Accountability for Local Councils – March 2014”. [There is a copy on the Parish Office] and the “Good Councillors Guide”. [Each Councillor has been given a copy]
These publications lay down the responsibilities that all councillors should cover and address. The audit that he carries out is a robust testing and enquiries procedure to see that the council is carrying out its responsibilities. There are two ‘Musts’ laid down in the Guidance. The first is number of meetings, 3 plus annual meeting, and the second is that a Risk Assessment must be formulated within the financial year. The External Auditor will issue a ‘qualification’ if the Risk Assessment is not undertaken and/or if the accounts are not approved by the end of June. A council must approve an ‘independent’ Internal Auditor and corporate governance within the council must be sound.
Common errors made by councils were:
• Not recording accurately the value of new assets
• Not recording the council tax support grant separately
• Not accurately recording payments made to the Public Works Loan Board
• The Annual Return does not add up correctly
• The Internal Auditor is not independent
• The Risk Assessment is not approved and completed within the financial year.
• The External Audit Report is not discussed and minuted when received
• Incorrect use of Section 137 or other powers for expenditure.

Cllr Willmott proposed and Cllr Hood seconded that the letter of engagement for Mr Hood to be the parish Council’s Auditor for 2015-2016 be signed. This was AGREED

The Chairman thanked Mr Hood for his attendance and wished him a safe journey home in the fog.

83. THE MINUTES of the meetings of the Planning Committee held on:
i) Wednesday 9th September 2105 which had been circulated previously and
ii) Wednesday 14th October 2015 which had been circulated with this Agenda
were received

84. THE MINUTES of the meetings of the F&GP Committee held on:
i) Monday 21st September 2015 which had been circulated previously and
ii) Monday 19th October 2015 which had been circulated with the Agenda

85. TO REPORT PROGRESS ON HOUSING FOR THE EXCEPTION SITE NORTH OF LONDON ROAD
P15/S2121/FUL Erection of 51 dwellings, with access from London Road, together with associated landscaping and open space provision. (Rural exception site) (As amended by Drawings accompanying agent’s letter of 13 October 2015)
The Parish Council was asked to either to recommend approval, recommend acceptance or give no strong views

The clerk read out two letters that had been received in the Parish Office objecting to
the amendments and aspects of the development.

The clerk also read out letters from Mr Johnson and Mr Edson both of St Mary’s Close which he had downloaded from the SODC planning website.

Cllr Newman said that the changes had been made as a result of consultation, noise assessment and the urban design people and the OCC Highways. The lack of amenity space has been accepted and a payment should be made to the Parish to be spent on recreation. The wall and the trees should not be affected. He understood that SODC would take the application to the November planning meeting (18th November)
8.30pm The Chairman declared the Council out of session and asked for contributions from the floor

Mr Pratley, 26 London Rd – Had sent his comments on the original plans. His key objection was that with the western entrance to the site. Cars exiting would mean headlights shining into his house. He felt that the exit should be moved.
County Councillor Anne Purse
Possible new road from Abingdon to M40 was mentioned only as an aspiration. But with the debate on the duelling of the A40 to Witney could mean the A40 from Headington might be moved and/or upgraded.
The Bus Consultation was due to be considered by the Cabinet as well as the budget cuts especially to the Children’s Centres. A suggestion had been made that if each centre could get £35,000 pledged for each year then a centre could be saved.
She suggested that the Parish Council could show a commitment to the centre in Wheatley

Vicky Job – parent at the Maple Tree Centre. She said she had depended on the Centre after the birth of her son. They were trying to think of ways of raising support for the centre eg “Friends of Maple Tree” and she would be contacting other parish councils whose residents used the centre.
In answer to a question from Cllr T Davies on whether savings could be made in using other premises Cty Cllr Purse explained that the Centre had been had been designed specifically to meet the needs of mothers and babies/toddlers.

Mr Doug Lamont, London Road – Site WHE 9, mentioned in the letter from Mr Edson, had never been offered to the Parish Council as a possible development site by SODC.
The objections brought up by the St Mary’s Group were things that SODC would have to consider anyway.
He was pleased that the Parish Council was considering to undertake a Neighbourhood Plan and urged the Council to make sure the whole village knew about the proposed meeting.

Mr Roger Bettess – Wheatley Flood and Drainage Group. The Group had been dealing with the problem at the Wheatley Sewage Treatment Works. Thames Water had been tankering away the effluent and the tankers had not always used the approved route. A meeting with Thames Water had been held where concerns on the environmental impact. He had been assured that the tankering would finish by the end of November.
8.55pm The Chairman declared the Council back in session

85. (Continued) London Road Development
Cllr Bell proposed ‘No Strong Views’ (SODC to decide) and give a list of the objections made by residents adjacent to the site. The motion was not seconded.

Cllr T Davies proposed and Cllr Hood seconded that the Parish Council recommend approval of the application as amended.
This was AGREED by 12 votes For, 0 votes Against and 1 Abstention. The Chairman did not vote.
The Parish Council would write to SODC asking them to consider all the objections

86. TO RECEIVE A REPORT FROM THE NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN STEERING GROUP
A report had been circulated to all members. A leaflet would be printed and posted through each door in the village advertising the meeting to be held on the 19th November. Village organisations were being contacted by members of the group and the idea of a Neighbourhood Plan was being explained to them.

87. TO CONSIDER THE USE OF THE MAPLE TREE CHILDREN’S CENTRE IN THE EVENT OF ITS CLOSURE
Cllr A. Davies proposed and Cllr Roberts seconded that ‘It is too early to consider the use of the Centre in the event of its closure.’ This was Agreed
It was further agreed that the item be put on the F&GP Agenda.
Cllr Newman proposed and Cllr Reilly seconded the motion that ’Wheatley Parish Council supports the Maple Tree Centre and will try and sustain its future within the village’. This was Agreed
The Clerk reminded members that as the Parish Council did not have a ‘power’ to spend money on a Children’s Centre any funding would have to come out of the parish’s Section 137 fund which was a limited pot.

88. TO CONSIDER MATTERS RELATING TO THE WHEATLEY PLAYING FIELD TRUST
A report from Cllr Willmott had been circulated to members before the meeting.
The bulk of the report was on the condition of the sports field and the buildings.
Legionnaire’s disease had been found and therefore the plumbing etc. would have to be tested each year at the cost of £2,000
An agreement had been reached with Wheatley Park School on their use of the sports field.
Once the Trust has the lease it would be able to apply for grants whereas the Sportsfield management Committee never could.
Cllr T Davies was concerned about who would be liable, the Parish Council or the Trust, for example, repairs to the boiler. The lease should make this clear.

89. TO ALLOCATE CLLR ROBERTS TO A STANDING COMMITTEE
Cllr Roberts was appointed to the Planning Committee

90. TO RECEIVE A REPORT FROM CLLR BELL ON THE COUNTY COUNCIL’S MEETING WITH TOWNS AND PARISHES TO “LOOK AT WAYS TO DELIVER PUBLIC SERVICES DIFFERENTLY”

The Parish Council would be asked for a dog waste bin to be located outside one of the gates. Noticeboards are being positioned around Howe Trust land and a’ walkabout’ is scheduled.

There was 1 non dwelling (garage) burglary.
iv) Wheatley Windmill Preservation Society – No report
v) Flood Group meeting – Cllr T Davies reported that one of he problems at the sewage treatment works was that the filters that had been installed were not doing their job properly and the treated sewage was not up to standard and that was why the tankers had been brought in. There was also concern about the state of the ditch up from Asda. Roger Bettess had brought this to the attention of Thames Water
vi) Neighbourhood Action Group – the police inspector asks if parish councils would join in a Crime Prevention Day. Cllr Davies would seek further information and report to F&GP.

95. STATEMENT FROM THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (Chair of the Meeting)

The Chairman of the meeting reminded councillors that should be careful when using their title ‘Councillor’. When it is used, in a letter for example, the recipient can be confused as to whether the councillor is speaking as an individual or for the Parish Council as a whole.
96. TO REPORT ON PROGRESS OF THE PARISH COUNCIL’S APPLICATION APPLYING FOR VILLAGE GREEN STATUS FOR THE PLAYING FIELDS AT LITTLEWORTH ROAD AND DECIDE ON A STRATEGY FOR THE PROPOSED ENQUIRY
